SNK America’s CMV-100 vertical machining center is said to provide efficient, precise five-axis machining and contouring in applications such as three-dimensional work profiles for dies and molds, aircraft components, and more. The VMC features a column-feed design and construction that eliminates table overhang, ensuring accuracy in prolonged machining.

The VMC’s wide, +30/-120-degree A-axis tilting spindle head enables undercuts in a single setup. A 40/30-hp spindle motor delivers both high-speed and high-power cutting capability. The spindle speed range of 40 to 8,000 rpm, with a maximum continuous torque rating of 600 Nm (442 foot-pounds) allows for a variety of machining requirements.

The 39.3- in.2 table provides a maximum load capacity of 3,300 lbs (without automatic pallet changer). It also features rotary table dynamic fixture compensation, which automatically compensates for work origin moves due to C-axis rotation of the rotary table. XYZ travels measure 59" × 52.3" × 51.1".

A FANUC 31i-B5 CNC provides control features designed to simplify demanding machining applications while delivering high workpiece finishes.

Other machine features include an two-pallet automatic pallet changer; an 80-tool automatic toolchanger ; tool axis manual movement function; scale feedback; workpiece probe; automatic tool length and diameter measuring function with broken tool detection slideway covers; spindle speed and load display meters;cycle completion total shutoff function; through-spindle coolant; splashguard; and chip conveyor. Optional features include a mist coolant device, mist collector and ATCs accommodating 50 to 312 tools.

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
